to ohio which president obama and governor romney, ready for this, are going to visit six separate times in the last four days of the break. today is the first day. president obama spends the entire day in ohio. he's got stops in springfield, lima, hilliard in franklin county which has voted for democrats in the last three elections but his other two stops are in counties which voted for mccain in 2008. after a morning rally in wisconsin romney is also in ohio today. in aetna and westchester both counties that voted republican the last three elections. you look at the president's campaign schedule and it makes the buckeye state look like an airline hub for airforce one with ohio stops every day through the election. colorado, swing through florida, got to change planes in ohio. mitt romney not only focused on ohio but is trying to broaden the battleground map. what is he up to here with this decision to campaign in pennsylvania on sunday? he's also got new hampshire on his list twice not once. the smallest swing state. they think it is edging their direction but more importantly for thei
